About The Hague Security Delta
What's happening in the
Dutch Security Domain?
From 16 until 18 January 2019, one of the largest Unmanned Systems events (TUS Expo) will be held again. This time in the beautiful and dynamic City of Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
Over a 100 organisations
TUS Expo Europe 2019 attracts more than 2500 international visitors and 100+ participating organizations from all over the world. TUS Expo Europe 2019 will be organized in collaboration with Infratech 2019.
More than 24 Conference tracks to choose from
We have several targeted tracks available for our Conferencedelegates. Tracks specific to end-user industries relevant for the Unmanned Systems industry. In addition there are a number of Summits taking place covering unmanned systems and robotic applications & regulations.
Invitation Only Activities
The Defence focus of the TUS Expo is concentrated in two invitation only activities. The first (17th of January) is a summit in which we discuss the dangers posed by UAV’s on critical infrastructure. The second (18th of January) is more specialized workshop organized with the Hague Centre for Strategic Studies (HCSS) and the Royal Netherlands Army (RNLA) in which the participants will actively try to discern what the strategic implications of the introduction of RAS will be on the RNLA.
Together, the summit and the workshop cover the full spectrum of violence and the full range of Remotely Operated and Autonomous Systems and will include participants from police forces, air, ground and sea and a wide range of relevant governmental and semi-governmental institutions from both the Netherlands and European NATO partners.
As UAV’s become more prevalent in our airspace, it becomes all the more vital to ensure the safety of the vital infrastructure of the Port of Rotterdam. From the mathematical certainty of accidents or negligence happening, through the inevitable use by criminals up to the odd chance of malignant actors we have to be ready.
TUS Expo explores the question of how to protect vital infrastructure from drones in close cooperation with the National and Harbour Police in this dedicated case study. What are the risks and dangers that we can expect now and in the near future. How can we detect and identify UAV’s that pose a danger. In what ways can we neutralize ever more capable drones that pose an imminent threat. All of this in a port area filled with sensitive industry and close to the largest city of the Netherlands.
Interested parties from the relevant industries, stakeholders in vital infrastructure and security and defence partners can apply to participate in this summit, where you can learn what will happen and what you can do against it.
Protection of Vital Infrastructure from Drones is organized in partnership & cooperation with: Dutch National Police, TNO Defense research, NCTV, Ministry of Defense.
At the TUS Expo, The Hague Centre for Strategic Studies (HCSS) and the Royal Netherlands Army (RNLA) intend to explore the strategic opportunities and consequences for the Netherlands in light of these developments. Calling on the unmanned and robotic systems community for their insights, we intend to identify the challenges and preconditions for this development, and assess the advantages that will arise for the RNLA as a result of this technological evolution.
The Exhibition showcases industry-leading European and global organizations transforming Unmanned Systems as we know them. All segments of the Unmanned Systems and the entire, global supply chain are represented at this high-profile event.
Attend inspiring presentations by knowledgeable, well-respected industry leaders at our two-day Conference.
